The Hamilton Diocesan Council of the Leaque is honoured to present two possible awards at its annual convention:
- The Frances Lovering Award This award is presented by the Hamilton Diocesan Council of the CWL. It is the Woman of the Year Award, named to honour Frances Lovering, a member of the first executive of Catholic Women's League of Canada, and the first Hamilton Diocesan president.
- The Bellelle Guerin Award This honour is awarded by the national council of the CWL. It is given to individuals who have worked tirelessly to keep the spirit of the League alive, in the same spirit of the first president of The Catholic Women's League of Canada, Bellelle Guerin.
Our Lady of Good Counsel Vocations Fund
In 2019 the diocesan council refocused Our Lady of Good Counsel Bursary for Seminarians and introduced Our Lady of Good Counsel Vocations Fund. The purpose of this fund is to provide financial assistance to seminarians and other vocations ministries of the diocese.
The bursary will continue to grow through the generous donations of the members of The Catholic Women's League throughout the diocese. Each year all donations received from parish councils will be presented to the Diocesan Vocations Director at the convention closing banquet.
